Went to a concert here, it was really good, the first time I've ever been inside, because it's kinda circular there doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the house so stage can be seen from anywhere.

Back to the waterfront hall just before Christmas for Gary lightbody's solo gig and the waterfront is still my favourite concert venue in Belfast. There isn't a bad seat in the house.

This is a fantastic venue! Love going to Belfast to watch a gig in the Waterfront. The location is so handy from the City and the acoustics are great.

My friend and our 2 young kids went to the matinee of Cinderella the Saturday before Christmas as a special treat. We parked at the Hilton multi story and were seriously overcharged (£7.60 from 11.45 to 15.30 or so) but for the ease of access etc we were ok with this. The Waterfront is an excellent venue with great amenities,... More

This venue insists on putting on concerts of bands who play the sort of music that you need to dance to - but don't you dare to dance - it's not allowed. However, It's a perfectly fine venue for classical music concerts and other shows. I've recently been to see Bay City Rollers, Nile Rogers, Mud, The Sweet, Hot Chocolate,... More

My brother and I visited Belfast for the RAF central band concert which was held in the waterfront Hall. I had not been here before but was very impressed by the hall itself, its location, acoustics and are excellent view of the stage. I hope to visit again.

Interesting choice of shows on but parking can be an issue in this area of the city and will certainly cost you! Driving here can be stressful if you are not familiar with the area and public transport may be preferable. The facilities within the Waterfront are good with full wheelchair access and professional staff who shepherd the public to... More
